Dinner time is a special time for ALL families – a time to reunite after the day, to share stories about our triumphs and our challenges, and a time to truly connect as we nourish ourselves to face all that tomorrow has to offer. Tonight, families just like yours, will gather around the tables at RMH London and RMH Windsor for just this purpose… for comfort.
Quite simply – Comfort Food is a dinner party hosted by you! Every year, in neighborhoods across Southwestern Ontario, there are thousands of families who need to travel far from home to receive the medical care their seriously ill child needs. By hosting a Comfort Food Event, you will join a community helping to ensure these families find a "home-away-from-home" with RMHC-SWO.
Your event can be as simple as a pizza party or as formal as a seated dinner. Rather than a gift or a bottle of wine, ask your guests to make a donation to help keep families together when they need each other most. It's really that easy!
Fill out our short Comfort Food Form and Kelley will be in touch to help you get your event cooking!
65% of families live outside of a city with a children's hospital. Your fundraiser will give them a "home-away-from-home" when travelling for their seriously ill child's medical care. Families like the Pavletics, who need to be in London for their son's cancer treatment, even though home is in Thunder Bay.
We look forward to dinner after long days at the hospital. It's our chance to sit together and talk about the day just like we would at home.Thank you for making this possible for our family.
